Can Minnesota United end the negative run and clinch the second win in six matches this Tuesday when they host Columbus Crew?

The visitors won’t come in the game in high spirits having dropped the ball on Saturday when they lost the home fixture to another newcomers Atlanta United 0-2.

Minnesota United

The English manager Adrian Heath is well aware of the limitations in his squad. We primarily refer to the defensive line which has been super vulnerable as Minnesota is the team with most conceded goals so far in the season in the entire MLS.

The latest of the failures for Heath and his men came on Friday evening when New York City put three goals past Minnesota to leave them at the tenth position of the Western Conference standings.

Columbus Crew

Columbus managed to end the series of negative results last weekend when they saw off Montreal Impact 4-1 on the home patch.

However, the Crew quickly returned to the old habits by suffering the second loss to Atlanta United in only two weeks.

The team is now on the brink of getting out of the playoffs zone after somewhat of a promising start to the new season.

Minnesota United vs Columbus Crew: Head to head

The two sides have not had the chance to meet each other previously.

Minnesota United vs Columbus Crew: Prediction

Columbus Crew are one of the worst visitors in the league as they have lost each of their last five games away from MAPFRE Stadium.

We doubt that Minnesota will fail to take advantage of Columbus’ poor form and we must see the value in chasing the hosts to grab three points at the odds of 13/8.
